Vinu and his mom, Asha, stay with his grandmother. Vinu is a D Pharm graduate who is searching for a job. Vinu lost his father when he was small. His mother raised him with her teaching job. As Asha had been caring for him, she wanted her son to stay with her and get a job nearby. As Asha forced him right from his studies, Vinu doesn’t have a good relationship with his mom. Asha is mentally depressed, as Vinu doesn’t have any jobs in their small town, and Vinu is a step ahead of Asha. After the death of Vinu’s grandmother, things begin to worsen, and both the mother and son face serious issues. What are those issues? Were they able to solve it? The rest of the film deals with this.

Star Performance

Revathi is a natural actress, and she did a fantastic job as Asha. Her expressions are stunning, and her chemistry with Shane is astounding. Shane Nigam excels in his role as Vinu. Both the stars bring a lot of emotions to their face, as the characters are in trauma.


The concept is simple, yet there are a lot of minute things involved in the story. The tiny stuff between Vinu and his mom and grandmother, the possessiveness, the love, affection, etc., are showcased well by the stars. The characters are well-written, and the right stars are picked. The solid characters and the stars made the audiences sit throughout the film. The BGM and visuals add beauty to the story. The production values are neat too.

What’s There?

  • The story, screenplay, and execution are good
  • The performances of Revathi and Shane are the biggest plus

What’s Not There?

  • A few minor errors


With a highly-talented duo, Revathi and Shane, the film travels with a lot of emotions. With some horror elements, the emotional movie drives the audience into the story. If you love watching emotional movies with different script-based, this one will suit you!
